    If I was to run cPanel can I run one (or both) of my DNS servers on the same physical machine as my web sites?

    Or is this not possible sence a DNS server requires a unique server name? Or would having the same IP be a problem?

    Please bare with me... I am learning :)

    Sweeeet.....

    I think this could be a bumb question but..... does cPanel take over Linux completely or can I run a voice over IP program like TeamSpeak2 on the same box in the background?

    TeamSpeak2 uses almost no CPU usage, only memory, so I guess it will depend on what cPanel needs in resources.....

    Don't know TeamSpeak but once you are up and running there are ways to check resource usage. Also would depend on how many sites you are running and their requirements.

    Doesn't take over. Just a gui interface to server functions basically.
